Donald Trump isn’t free from the sway of special interests. He IS a special interest. You think he won’t favor billionaires & business? Ha.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) January 17, 2016
Trouble is, I've been starting to wonder if "special interest" is just what Busiek's become of recent. He sure isn't helping any with this kind of balderdash.
The Democratic approach to leadership: "you have to engage in patient persistent diplomacy with people who are not your friends."— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) January 17, 2016
The (current) GOP approach to leadership: “PUNCH EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FACE ALWAYS! OTHERWISE YOU’RE A WEAKITY WEAKER!"— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) January 17, 2016
I guess that means he sees nothing wrong with the Iran deal, which has become particularly atrocious after the cave-in when US sailors were taken hostage. And that's truly awful. What Busiek's said are the kind of commentaries that make one wonder why he spent all that time writing Marvel/DC superhero books in past decades. But then, maybe that's why we're unlikely to see him writing that many more in the forseeable future, if he no longer has faith in the themes he'd written in the yesteryear. Too bad, because many of them were impressive.
He also made the following comments for MLK Memorial day:
The thing I’d like to say this Martin Luther King Day is that if MLK were alive today, he’d obvsly agree with me about comic book lettering.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) January 18, 2016
Also, MLK would urge you all to buy THE AUTUMNLANDS and ASTRO CITY, and to support my chosen political candidates.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) January 18, 2016
That depends on what their mindset and platform is. Because if they turn their backs on serious issues, and he has no problem with that, he shouldn't expect MLK to support the same candidates he is. On which note, Daniel Greenfield's told the following about MLK's positions on Islam:
"When Cassius Clay joined the Black Muslims and started calling himself Cassius X he became a champion of Racial Segregation and that is what we are fighting against. I think perhaps Cassius should spend more time proving his boxing skill and do less talking," Martin Luther King said.Wonder if Busiek thinks just that if he knows that King disapproved of Muhammad Ali's capitulation to the belief system of a white supremacist from remote times? Who knows? For now, it sounds like he's trying to exploit MLK for his own absurd politics. And IMHO, that's a ridiculous thing to do.
How "Islamophobic" of King.
